Redefining the Nervous System

About Us

We are developing the next generation of intelligent neural interfaces for closed-loop neuromodulation. This technology will enable us to repair and augment the nervous system. Our first applications target the body's neural information superhighway, the vagus nerve (Cranial Nerve X)

Our Team

Gerard O’Leary

B.Eng., M.A.Sc., PhD Candidate

Co-Founder and Chief Technical Officer

Gerard O’Leary is a neuroelectronics PhD researcher at the University of Toronto. He has held engineering positions at Analog Devices, The European Space Agency and ARM. His research focuses on the interface between neural and electronic systems, creating low-power integrated circuits and systems which utilize signal processing and machine learning techniques to infer brain states and control activity using responsive neuromodulation. He has co-authored 11 IEEE publications and 3 patents. He has served as a team mentor for the UofT Entrepreneurship Hatchery and the CTO of BrainLoop, a startup dedicated to the data-driven differential diagnosis of epilepsy.
